MESQUITE, Nev. — Police said no damage resulted and no one
reported feeling an earthquake that scientists say rumbled beneath the desert
about 21 miles southeast of the resort city on the Nevada-Arizona state line.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 3.4 magnitude temblor Friday morning
in a remote part of the Arizona Strip north of the Colorado River and southeast
of Interstate 15.
The epicenter was put about 40 miles southwest of Saint George, Utah, 70 miles
northeast of Las Vegas and nearly 240 miles northwest of Phoenix.
